Jalen Carter and Brock Bowers are Two of the Four Lombardi Award Finalists

Georgia junior defensive lineman Jalen Carter and sophomore tight end Brock Bowers have been named two of the four finalists for the Rotary Lombardi Award, according to an announcement from the Rotary Club of Houston and the Rotary Lombardi Award Committee Thursday.

Carter, a native of Apopka, Fla., and Bowers, a native of Napa, Calif., are the first teammates selected as finalists for the award since 1999 (Penn State).  Dating back to 1998 with Matt Stinchcomb’s selection as a finalist, the Bulldogs have had six finalists, including Carter and Bowers: David Pollack, 2003-04; Jarvis Jones, 2012.  Pollack won the honor in 2004.





The winner of the 2022 award will be announced during a formal dinner and award ceremony on Dec. 7 at the Hilton of the Americas in downtown Houston.
